Park Hill homes signed off
Work will start in early 2024, after Urban Splash and Places for People secured approval for the 125-apartment fourth phase of the listed Sheffield estate’s redevelopment.
As outlined by Place Yorkshire here, the plans represent an update on initial proposals for the Duke Street block at Park Hill, with a proposed art gallery now dropped from the scheme.
Over the last decade, the grade two-listed estate has seen 455 homes added in ,along with accommodation for 356 students and more than 50,000 sq ft of workspace.
Architect Mikhail Riches is on board, with designs that will be broadly similar to the aesthetic of Park Hill phase two, which it also designed.
The approved designs also comprise new public realm, EV charging, a car club and bike storage.
Steve Thomas, development manager at Park Hill, said: “We are excited to take forward our vision for this next stage of Park Hill. This building is culturally and architecturally significant for Sheffield, and for a long time now we have committed to bringing it back to life, nurturing a new community and giving the city a new place in which to live, work and play.”
The new phase will also include 4,700 sq ft of ground floor commercial space. Businesses already operating out of Park Hill include interior designer Nest, the Grace Owen Nursery, and the Pearl at Park Hill pub.
Thomas continued: “Through open dialogue, and building on what’s already been achieved at Park Hill, we have put sustainability and green space at the heart of this newest phase and are looking forward to moving forward with the project in the coming months.”
The 30,000 sq ft of commercial space from phase one is now fully let. Around 5,000 s ft of commercial space will be created within phase four.
